  • 7. no people that have complained have gone and bought something better and come back and extolled not having a problem. I do take exception to the point you made above. I had a Garmin Nuvi 765T, which was my fourth Garmin. I was a loyal Garmin fa…
  • I solved this problem for myself, by buying a TomTom. It pains me to say that because I have owned four Garmin units and out of those I loved three of them. That love affair stopped after I bought the 765T. I hated that thing since day one. I still …
  • Gene, I am sorry that I cannot help you with that one as I have been using the Live services. I do know that if I lose connection with the TomTom servers that the RDS antenna activates and takes over the traffic function until I am able to connect …
  • Gene, It all depends upon your settings. If during a trip your TomTom 740 finds a quicker route you can set it to either reroute you automatically or to verbally tell you that it has found a quicker route and allow you to decide. With the newest s…
  • OK great, so the touch screen issues look like they are fixed. What about the weird routing that some have posted about, including myself? Any headway on that? I have abandoned my Nuvi 765T in favor of a different manufacturer because of that issue.…
  • After sending TomTom a nasty e-mail and threatening to take the unit back I received a call from them the next day. They had me do a hard reset and then she said that she had to do something on the server and to leave the TomTom off until she called…
  • I am having the same issue with my Go 740 TM. All of the other live features (weather, Google, safety cameras) work. Just not the traffic. I called TomTom last night (again) and was told that it is an issue with the latest map. I am not buying it as…
  • Actually, TomTom is having me return this unit. after several hours on the phone, they cannot get it to work with any account. I created a new account for it and it will not allow me to connect.
  • dhn, Thanks again for the reply. I will have to play with TYRE. I appreciate the help you have given as I have transitioned from one brand to another.
  • Well, if the maps are the same and the only difference is the POI database, then I am glad I went with a connected device. Google Search has already been a big help. Thanks for your replies, dhn.
  • Oops, I did not notice that the USA map only has the USA. My fault for not reading closely. Is there any way to get the "non-modified" map if I use a memory card? I am leery of a product that has been modified to make it fit in a smaller space.
  • Sorry alanb, but that has not been my experience. Using shortest route will produce a different route on my Nuvi, but it is equally awful to the route produced by fastest time. Neither setting will keep me on the highway. This thread contains a lot…
  • No, that setting will not matter. This has been my big complaint about my Garmin Nuvi 765T for the past year that I have owned it. It will put me on a surface street with traffic and lights when there is a freeway running right beside it. It cannot …
  • Yes, I discovered that I need to delete the Temp.GPX file. That seems to work, but I hope it doesn't mess anything else up.
  • I have a Street Pilot C550 with 2008 maps that does a great job of routing me to where I am going. I have a Wal-Mart that is right next to an exit ramp of a highway. The C550 routes me to that exit. I just purchased a Nuvi 765T with the 2020.10 maps…
